Not everone likes the stuffing to be incorporated with their meat and besides it can be a tad impractical when you have a vegan guest dining at your home.

Here is a fun idea and alternative to stuffing that chicken or pork, rather serve your stuffing on the side!

** WARNING! These are addictive!

Preparing & Cooking time - 1hr
Serves 8

For the filling:
1 box ready made stuffing mix (I love Ina Paarman's Sage & Onion mix)
2 Tbsp butter
1 Extra-large egg
1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese

For the coating:
1 sachet fried chicken coating/cornflake crumbs or breadcrumbs ( I love Hinds Garlic & Herb or my own homemade crumbs)

For the stuffing mix:
In a bowl mix together the box stuffing , butter and cheese. Add 1 cup boiling water and mix well , once it is all combined add the egg and mix well ( do not add the egg before the boiling water as the boiling water will cook the egg and separate the mixture). Roll into balls and then roll in the crumb coating , set these onto a baking tray.

Refrigerate for 20mins.

Deep fry until golden brown , place on paper towel to absorb excess oil and serve immediately.

Cooks notes -
These can be served as part of a roast dinner or alternatively as snacks with humus as a dipping sauce.

Oh yes , hide the left overs or else they will disappear...I all but had fisticuffs with my dad at Christmas *tee hee*
